PARK(ing) Day: Time to Park it in Cambridge

Happy (almost) PARK(ing) Day, Cambridge! Friday the City of Cambridge converts metered parking spaces into activity hubs and mini parks. Eighty-five local businesses, nonprofits and city departments will fill your Friday with good times. Their mission is to call attention to the value of public space. 

Out of the 155 PARK(ing) spaces, here are some ideas for where to start with PARK(ing) Day fun.
